If you are noble, I will love you; if you are not, I will not hurt youand myself by hypocritical attentions. If you are true, but not in the same truthwith me, cleave to your companions; I will seek my own. I do this not selfishlybut humbly and truly. It is alike your interest, and mine, and all men’s, howeverlong we have dwelt in lies, to live in truth. Does this sound harsh to-day? Youwill soon love what is dictated by your nature as well as mine, and if we followthe truth it will bring us out safe at last.—But so may you give these friendspain. Yes, but I cannot sell my liberty and my power, to save their sensibility.Besides, all persons have their moments of reason, when they look out into theregion of absolute truth; then will they justify me and do the same thing. The populace think that your rejection of popular standards is a rejection of allstandard, and mere antinomianism; and the bold sensualist will use the nameof philosophy to gild his crimes. But the law of consciousness abides. —Ralph Waldo Emerson(Self-Reliance and Other Essays)
